Keith Moon

Final 24: His Final Hours DVD

Review by Gary Hill

Just based on the concept of this series, you can probably understand that there is a certain “driving by a fatal collision” element to these videos. Since their whole purpose is chronicling the final 24 hours a celebrity walked the Earth, there is a definite morbid fascination involved. Still, for many fans of Keith Moon and The Who, his death was a senseless and unnecessary one and perhaps delving deeper into the events leading up to it can help to give a better understanding and sense of closure. The story is a sad one about a man who was taking doctor prescribed medication to beat an alcohol addiction. Unfortunately that man also had a cocaine problem, and using coke caused him to underestimate the dangers of drinking while taking that medicine. This DVD gives a deeper analysis of this tragic chain of events that ended the life of one of rock music’s most colorful drummer’s.
